Bona Bona Game Lodge

North West, South Africa

An ultra-affordable base in a great destination

An authentic South African safari camp surrounded by majestic wildlife - experience includes breakfast, dinner, a game drive and more

As you’d expect from an African game lodge that takes its names from the Tswana word for ‘Look’, there’s plenty to feast the eyes on at Bona Bona Game Lodge. Take the N12 Treasure Route from Johannesburg here and you’ll find a sanctuary for the body and mind in the serene South African bushveld. There’s 1,600 hectares to explore after all.

Nature and nurture come together here in the Safari Spa’s treatment menu and on the restaurant’s romantic terrace. When you’re not enjoying sundowners or an al fresco barbecue, you’ll find the local wildlife more than enough entertainment. Watch the goings-on at the overlooking waterhole or listen out for the roar of the African lions (and less predictably; tigers) from your guestrooms here.
